[ laughter ] let's go out to berkeley because this issued a traffic alert here. it is a mess right now on the eastshore freeway. we thought they may be able to clear those wood pallets from the roadway relatively quickly. that is not the case. now they're going to have one lane blocked for at least a half-hour. westbound 80 at university avenue. it was a big rig that hit a large pothole and then it spilled a bunch of wood into the roadway. so for a while two lanes were blocked by the wood debris. i know they're working to clear some of this mess. but the delays are already really bad. it's backed up to cutting heading out of the richmond area. 30 miles per hour. at least once you get past all that mess in berkeley, it's clear. better than usual in fact as you head closer to the macarthur maze approaching powell and emeryville. that's certainly a hot spot out
6:18 am
the door. actually saw some flashing lights heading eastbound. not sure if they are heading to the scene now. the approach to the toll plaza metering lights turned on at 5:38. the eastshore freeway is in the red, 40 minutes from the carquinez bridge to the maze. once you get on the span, it's okay. dense fog in full effect, though. there is a chp dense fog advisory for the bay bridge. san mateo bridge no delays westbound or eastbound 92. that's your latest drive to work. here's roberta gonzales with the forecast. >> i don't know if i did this photograph justice here. i was trying to frame it properly. gary sent it in and was trying to capture the recent full moon in sebastopol and said he had no ideas these horses were behind the trees and he thinks they were spooked by the full moon but gary, thank you so much for e-mailing me this photo. invite you all to do the same at gonzales@kpix.cbs.com. we'll feature it right here on our "kpix 5 morning news" cast.
6:19 am
this is the scene my picture looking out from our kpix 5 studios towards the embarcadero. the fog appears to be improving there but we still have some dense fog in many neighborhoods. it's in the 40s and 50s out the door right now and that highlighted area is where we had the dense fog advisory in effect until 10:00 this morning. many of our neighborhoods reporting visibility down to about a quarter of a mile. oakland, extremely dense this morning around the bay. so we had widespread fog. once that lifts and dissipates we'll have increasing cloud cover from the north then rain arrives around midnight. this is an impressive area of low pressure. the core is 1300 miles due west of the pacific northwest and that is the target area well into victoria in british columbia. we have this area of high pressure that's going to break down at the tail end of the system as it whips up against the ridge. but it's going to fall apart at the seams. so according to our futurecast just some hit and miss rain showers. we are hoping from a quarter to
